Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 30; 2OY1 ....... NEWS:IIBRIEFS rriu00 NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER PLICATIONS) Compiled by rio Z. Buttafuoeo THE SEARCH FOR WELLBEING AND HAPPINESS IN ITALY. Economists and statistic experts in Italy have been quite busy of late. They are trying to find the real formula that could indicate the level of economic development which can also indicate the growth, or stagnation, of a nation, and detect what the indicators tell about the social condi- tions of the nation ITALIA for the year 201 I. The experts seek to identify the level of the economic well-being of the people. Essentially the search is focused on the health con- ditions of the country, as a result of a study on the psycho- physical status of the people who live there, their level of education, their overall knowledge, their understanding of 'labor', well-being, environment, interpersonal relations, and their intermingling in society. Also, they will try to find out what the citizens' sense of insecurity is, as it re- lates to economic and social conditions. We will learn more when the results of the study are made public in June 2012• In the meantime we would like to introduce our readers to the level of happiness in relations to residents of a coun- try: Costa Rica; Denmark; Iceland; Switzerland; Finland; Holland; Norway; Sweden; Panama; Mexico (in that order, from place 1 to 10). Where do we find Italy? In 31 st place[ Now let's ma[ch the above statistics with the one issued by the United Nations (from 1 to 10): Norway; Australia; Iceland; Canada; Ireland; Holland; Sweden; France; Swit- zerland; Japan. This time Italy comes up better in 18  place! On the other hand, Costa Rica drops from first place to the 54thl According to UN officials the latter list was the result of the answers given to three questions: Living a long and healthy life; higher education; living generally a good life. WASTE OF TALENTS IN SOUTHERN ITALY: 150 YEARS LATER THE GOVERNMENT IS STILL ABSENT[ Mario Moretti Pelegato, not a southerner, a prominent entrepre- neur, after looking at the data on youth unemployment, stated that," In order to change direction it is imperative to show political will, which has been absent, for many decades." He added that Italy keeps losing talented youth because it is unable to offer better conditions than other countries. He said also that he offers to the young people who work in his companies a school education within one company, where youngsters can follow formative training to various levels, a free company-run child care center, for children aged 3 to 6. They continue doing everything by themselves without any government subsidy ... and there are none of them available. The incentives are provided by the companies, not that many of them, indeed. The only way to keep talented youngsters from going away is for the Government to offer guaranteed better conditions than those they certainly find in other countries. Mario Pelegato has referred to youngsters in the South of Italy who are talented but cannot find a job, despite the fact that their learning is at par, or even better, than their coun- terparts in the north. Despite their high qualifications, the northern industries offer them only menial jobs, at low pay! What else is new: the perennial northern social discrimi- nation?

OLD TOILET BECOMES NEW RESTAURANT Only in Boston would a former public restroom on the Boston Common turn into a classy restaurant and make page one news in both the Beacon Hill Times and Boston Courant newspapers. The restaurant chain, Earl of Sandwich, has signed a 15 year lease and will renovate the building which has been vacant for almost 40 years. The company is hoping to open in the spring. I wonder if the place will have restrooms for patrons. For those who forgot about this structure, it is between the Parkman Bandstand and the ballpark.

APPLE PICKING TIME AGAIN I recently went apple pick- ing for the first time in my life. Up til now, all my apple picking has been confined to supermarket bins in the produce department. I tried going to Big Apple in Wrentham, Mass. But they were apple picking the fol- lowing week. You could buy bags of apples already bagged and just off the conveyor belt but that was natural enough for me. I ended up at a cool place in Johnson, R[ by the name of Dame Farm & Orchards. The apples were great by the way, especially the Macintosh and Gala apples. The peaches weren't ripe enough yet, but I tried one and it was good enough for me.
